INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY TAKES A RAW AND INTENSE LOOK AT LIFE AND DEATH ON THE FRONTLINES OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE NEW SERIES "BODY CAM"

"He's now shooting a rifle. My vest is rated for a handgun. I might as well have been in a t-shirt behind that tree." - Deputy Eric Cheek, Volusia County Sheriff's Department

"I chose to do this job and if I have to risk myself to protect the public, I will." - Sgt. Brandon Bartley, Newport News Police Department

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Taking viewers on the ultimate ride-along, Investigation Discovery announces BODY CAM, a gripping new series that gives viewers their own eyewitness look at the life-or-death instant decisions of policework, as told by officers' own body camera footage. Offering an immersive portrayal of life on the streets, BODY CAM engages a unique storytelling technique combining the body camera footage with first-hand accounts to virtually place viewers in harrowing moments as the suspense builds and the tension rises. Each episode tells multiple stories of those who vowed to protect and serve in unflinching detail, offering viewers their own personal perspective of officers in life-threatening circumstances. From domestic disputes to ambushes and traffic stops gone dangerously awry, BODY CAM profiles just how quickly seemingly routine situations can escalate into tragic altercations. Produced by Arrow Media, the unfiltered, suspenseful, and heart pounding 10-part series BODY CAM premieres on Tuesday, November 27 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery, America's leading true crime and justice network.

"Body cameras are meant to provide accountability and, while such footage oftentimes faces public scrutiny, we hope that this series will shed some further light on the dangers that officers regularly face in their daily effort to keep us safe," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "Indeed, by showing actual footage of these harrowing encounters, BODY CAM not only offers an intimate and intense look at law enforcement, but also provides the viewer with a visceral sense of what life is like for those who must, on occasion, risk their lives to protect ours."

Each story in BODY CAM transports the viewer headfirst into the reality of law enforcement, seeing the world as they see it from the moment they get the call from dispatch. Between body camera and dashcam footage, dispatch and radio transmissions with additional officers on scene, viewers get a completely authentic, front-row seat as the pursuit intensifies. Each story weaves interviews with responding officers throughout to provide critical context to their decisions and to provide a raw understanding of the aftershocks of the drama. At the conclusion of each story, emotional interviews with those who lived through the events provide additional insight to the life-changing, sometimes tragically fatal, moments.

In the premiere episode, a domestic dispute call in Uniontown, Ohio turns into a violent shoot-out, leaving Sgt David White fighting for his life. The episode ends in Glendale, Ohio, when rookie Josh Helling is forced to pull his weapon on a busy highway when a pedestrian unexpectedly pulls a knife. Additional stories covered this season include: a domestic dispute in Deltona, Fla. escalates into an armed siege as a mother narrowly escapes with a gunshot wound that leaves her children hostage inside the house with the shooter; a brutal crime is caught on camera, sparking a manhunt for a vicious killer in Newport News, Va.; serving an arrest warrant to a sex offender turns deadly in Muldrow, Okla.; Sheriff's deputies battle a deadly fire which quickly turns into a murder investigation in Hudson Falls, N.Y.; an armed man on the loose in Americus, Ga. vows that he'd rather die than go back to jail, murdering two officers in the process; and more.

BODY CAM is produced for Investigation Discovery by Arrow Media with Nick Metcalfe as executive producer. For Investigation Discovery, Thomas Cutler is senior executive producer, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager and Henry Schleiff is Group President, Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America.
